That Unisaw is priced a bit high IMO, but it’s a nice saw. Plan on replacing belts and bearings regardless… an extra $100 at most. Once you open up the motor, you can determine the condition of the commutator, brushes and shorting necklace – all of which may need some attention. I wouldn’t consider it plug-n-play right off the bat, but it certainly is an ideal restoration candidate as long as all the pieces are there. Would clean up really nice and the cast iron plinth is a bonus.

Cheers,
Brad
